Despite advancements in technology, the manual glue gun is still widely used in many manufacturing processes. It’s a tool that squeezes out the adhesive precisely where the glue is needed. Glue guns simplify the glue coating process and help boost productivity compared to extrusion bottles and syringes. This makes them practical for industries, such as electronic appliances, auto parts, construction, and decoration. Here’s how they work:
No electricity or battery required
Manual glue guns use a pneumatic function that delivers compressed air to push the bottom of the glue. This helps reduce the operator’s efforts while improving the quality and efficiency of the glue. There’s no need to connect the glue gun to a power supply or a battery. To accommodate a manual glue gun, the factory production line must have a source for compressed air, such as an air compressor from an air pipe or a dedicated air compressor station.
Manual operation required
Its name says everything about how it functions. An operator must press the plate manually to dispense the glue. While in use, the pusher must be pulled back and set on top. Then, the mixing pipe must be filled with glue and positioned into the glue gun. The matching mixing nozzle can be changed at the glue cylinder’s front and then wrenched to dispense the adhesive.
Easy to handle
The manual glue gun is compact and easy to handle, carry, and operate. So, it can be used in different work scenarios. It can handle different types of liquids for other dispensing operations, too. It doesn’t take much training to teach operators how to use the glue gun correctly, but be sure to get the right type to suit your specific purpose.
